Celebrity Style Profile – David Gandy

How to Steal David Gandy’s Style at Martin & Phelps Hair Salon & Barber Shop in Cheltenham

As a leading male model, style means everything to David Gandy.  He has proven consistently that he is one of the best-dressed men in the country, with his tailored suits and James Bond British styling melting hearts around the world.  It’s not only his tailoring and outfits that make him look so suave though – his hairstyle and grooming are always immaculate too.  If you’d like to follow his lead, here are some of our favourite David Gandy looks….

The Best Barbershop and Male Grooming Services Cheltenham





Hairstyles For Men With Wavy Hair

David is lucky enough to have gloriously thick, wavy hair, which is not only totally on trend right now but is also the envy of most men – and women.  The cut he models here is very classic but isn’t tapered into the back and sides. Rather, it’s all about square layers, roughly a few inches long all over the whole head, to maintain the softness throughout.  To style your  hair like this, use a small amount of styling product throughout damp hair then just leave to dry naturally.

Textured Quiff Hairstyles For Men

We think David looks fabulous with this relaxed version of the traditional quiff.  This look is less about sleekness and more about matte texture than with a traditional quiff.  A textured quiff is ideal for winter, when blustery winds and rain will only make it look better.  This style is a great choice for men with wavy hair.  Try using some of our Fudge styling products to achieve this look.

Medium Length Hair For Men

If you are considering growing out shorter hair, or you just want to go for a more relaxed look, this slightly longer length hairstyle will work perfectly for you.  Curling just over the collar, this style works best for men with curly or wavy hair, as with a little product the hair can be styled easily to look relaxed and messy.  Ask your Martin & Phelps barber to recommend the best men’s hair care product for your particular hair type.

Styling a Widow’s Peak

A “widow’s peak” is simply a hairline with a v-shape in the front, above the forehead.  If you have a widow’s peak like David Gandy, it’s genetic trait and we’d recommend simply find the best hairstyle to compliment it.

Ask your Martin & Phelps barber to shave the sides of your hair or alternatively ask for a skin fade, which will draw attention away from your front hairline.  If you have thick hair, we would recommend that you leave it longer on top and slick back in a stylish quiff to compliment your widow’s peak.  If your hair is fine, then a shorter hairstyle would work the best for you.

Grooming for Men

Whether he’s clean shaven or sporting facial hair, everyone will probably agree that David is a seriously good-looking man!  One of our favourite looks of his is the “country gent” style he’s modelling here, together with some fashionable stubble with a light moustache.  As part of our barber service we offer wet shaves, beard trims and can keep your facial hair in tip top condition with our range of men’s grooming products, including the Shave Doctor range.
